3:04 am
the cash went through the fence and the fence is repaired already, did quick work. but carl larson's car hit where there's like an exit way, and it was a weaker part of the fence and that's where the car was airborne and the engine from the car dismantling and landed on the other side of the fence one of the wheels of the car, not just the tire, but the brake and everything catapulted up, 33 injuries. i was on the other side of the track, and the grandstand and the inside and i was watching the race on a big screen to get a better view of it and saw the crash about to happen and turned around at my back and heard what sounded like a bomb and all of the debris flying through the air. 33 people at this point is the number of people injured. and 14 of those we're hearing according to the nascar rep to
3:05 am
the hospital two in critical condition, but at least everybody in stable condition and that's the good news. but a frightening scene for all of the viewers and spectators right there at the crash, in the crash site. take a listen to what one of the fans had to say. >> a motor was sitting in the stands and a while, and i don't mean a tire i mean, a wheel with a brake drum on it and everything flying over your head and debris everywhere and smoke and people crying. >> rick: a very, very scary time for everybody and nascar officials say everything is ready and the race is going off on time. and 200,000 people ready and are fans and ready for this race. at 6:30, guys, talking with larry mcreynolds one of the fox nascar analysts and we're going to be talking with him what impact this has on the race and does this do something to get in the mind of the drivers when you have a crash like this happen right on the eve of the 500?
3:06 am
guys? >> that's a great question. tony stewart says we're excited about the race, but now a smoke cloud headed into it, thanks, buddy, check with you later. >> alisyn: thanks, rick. and the headlines now, a lot of news to tell you about, another fox news alert. and we have a live report from the vatican, pope benedict is giving hits final sunday blessing and hundreds of thousands in the square, and his last public appearance as pope and final appearance on wednesday and steps down on thursday, the first pope to resign in 600 years, just as oscar pistorius is dealing with murder charges we're learning that his brother is in the same situation. overnight details emerging that carl pistorius is facing homicide charges over a 2010 car crash. he allegedly hit and killed a female cyclist driving
3:07 am
recklessly. and the attorney says that the woman allegedly drove into his car. and the subject they're searching for after the deadly drive-by shooting on the las vegas rip. 26-year-old amar harris. the black range rover was found at an apartment complex near the strip. that s.u.v. rode up to a maserati. and that exploded killing three people. in dallas the monorail gets stuck 20 feet above ground and took about half an hour for them to rescue 100 poom from t the-- people from the rail. >> clayton: thanks. >> tucker: five days until the sequester kicks in, the mandatory spending cuts that president obama ap the white house staff came up with last year, and senator lindsey graham says the president should not trust the president
3:08 am
to make the cuts. if they are allowed to do that. here is senator lindsey graham explaining. >> this idea that republicans have let it go into effect and watch the president fix it is really not leadership. don't you think that's what's wrong with washington? i thought we were the party of fiscal responsibility. the republican house passed a t and our democratic friend are going to raise taxes which is a bad idea, i think at that republican senators should put a plan on the table, rather than turning the government over to barack obama to find the cuts and just watch him do whatever he'd like, i don't like that proposal at all. >> love it or hate it, the president put entitlement cuts to others, but republicans have the not put forward a plan. >>, but the republicans in the house did. >> sure, but to the senate, to his point they don't need to be the party that sort of sits back and this is sort of what bobby jindal was talking about, not being the party that sits back and waits for everyone to unfold and says
3:09 am
no, says no. put forward a plan and get it through. >> alisyn: isn't there a question about the sequester, if this happened. if this doomsday scenario happens and nobody wants it to happen, but this is so mind blowing that washington found itself in this position because nobody wants it, everybody agrees on that. >> yeah. yet, they can't get out of their own way to figure out how it could not happen. if it does happen. isn't the answer to let the people in the individual agencies figure out where to trim and the latitude to do that? >> no, because individual agencies obviously don't want any of their budget cut. so the classic gambit is the washington monument strategy. the park gets a cut and they close the monument or yellowstone. >> clayton: the government shut down. >> tucker: and i would say that the president does want sequestration. and makes his case. every employee is essential to
3:10 am
federal government. you cut 2% from the government, meat inspections stop, you can't get on an airplane, day care closes, no more kindergarten teachers, first responders out of work. it's ludicrous could you cut 2 or 4% out of your household budget. >> alisyn: easily. my latte. and we have to do that, we do our-- >> your people magazine be subscription, exactly. and look, if you look the at the way the government has-- people have not cut the size of government since the 1950's, neither party has, so government spending under president obama has individually, we all put forward our own amount of money if ali wants to cut her people magazine subscription, and latte subscription, this is how much we personally are paying every year per captive, gone up since 2008, 822.90 per
3:11 am
hour hold 2,437 more dollars that your household is spending on federal spending, government spending, because they can't, it never goes down, it just goes up. >> tucker: i think a good point. why shouldn't the republican house leadership convince the country of the cuts it wants? come out with a list, here is 2.4% over ten years, here is exactly where the money should come from. john boehner should old a press conversations, eric cantor the same thing, and make the president turn down their points. >> clayton: they're all bought into it, because the propose proposed is, 174 republicans signed it and agreed to it and then the president signed it once they sent it to them. they're all in on this whole thing. it's not like someone is off scott free. >> tucker: why should the cuts be discrim nat and wait three lines to get on the airplane or cut the meat suspecters. >> alisyn: be strategic about it. >> tucker: why should
3:12 am
republicans not take control and sit back, let it happen. >> alisyn: meanwhile, you don't know this, perhaps, but we are with a resident seinfeld expert. clayton morris has an expertise that happens on seinfeld. one of your favorites. >> clayton: the one involved a scheme that newman and cramer hatched to gather up as many cans and bottles as they could in new york city, take newman's postal truck and they could save then on transportation, and drive the bottles and cans to michigan where they pay higher for the recycle rate. >> alisyn: ten cents per bottle. >> clayton: and this ended up being a funny episode. take a look. >> and mi 10 cents. >> that's michigan, michigan you get 10 cents. >> 10 cents? >> yeah, wait a minute, 5 cents here and 10 cents there, you could round up bottles here and-- >> that doesn't work. >> you overload your inventory and blow your margins on
3:13 am
gasoline, it doesn't work. >> you're not talking that michigan deposit bottle scam. >> no, no, i'm off that. >> you are. >> oh, yeah, everywhich way, couldn't crunch the numbers, drove me crazy. >> alisyn: life is now imitating art. or that was art imitating life, i don't know, this is happening in michigan people from other states are driving in their bottles to collect and it's bankrupting michigan. >> tucker: well, basically eastern michigan is bankrupt anyway, this is what you get passing a dumb law like this, aluminum and glass, are valuable for licensing, and you don't need a law, i don't know why the government is artificially inflating that. >> clayton: coming across the state line, it's illegal to bring it out of state. >> tucker: how can they trace it. >> clayton: that's what i want it it know. >> tucker: the law is to get you to recycle. >> alisyn: just for their state.
3:14 am
and not in wisconsin and ohio and people are loading up their vans ala newman and costs thursday far like 13 million dollars is leaving michigan and trying to figure out how to crock down. it's good for environment. it it may not. in washington it costs more energy to recycle than it saves. >> clayton: if you're driving a postal truck across state lines it costs more. coming up on the show remember when president obama said this about his health care plan. >> if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. >> clayton: a new report says differently. a man just confronted one of the lawmakers that helped to push obamacare through, that's next. >> tucker: why new york city's mayor michael bloomberg has taken the nanny state indeed to your house, and his birthday party, that's coming up.

>> remember the stream of promises the president gave right before signing the affordable care act? >> so, if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. >> oh, well, maybe not. new data from the congressional budget office estimates that more than 7 million americans will lose that employer-based insurance thanks to obamacare. our next guest confronted one of the lawmakers who pushed that bill through the house. >> are you concerned with the latest cbo report and saying that at least 7 million people may lose their health insurance because of obamacare? >> well, i'm concerned for anybody, if anybody is projected to lose their health insurance, but we have to see.
3:19 am
we have to see how it plays out. it started the affordable care act, what we don't like we can change. >> tucker: and the senior investigative reporter from fox network joins us, jason, this was the core promise of health care, there's not going to be rationing and keep your health insurance, that's not true. >> no, shocker, it's not true. obamacare health care promises have a chef life, apparently and a short one. we just heard engle out of new york say, well, i think we have to wait and see, what we don't like we can channing. i don't know, tucker, do you remember that option, what we don't like we can change? i remember the option of obamacare spoken in exact terms, if you like your health care insurance you'd be able to keep it and we're not even three years into the law yet and already, the cbo is projecting that at least 7 million people would lose their health insurance as a
3:20 am
direct result of obamacare, so, where is the accountability? there seems to be none. >> because in the end, you can't change math no matter how many laws. and make it too expensive for health insurance companies to cover people, they won't. >> this is just the beginning, premiums have gone up, especially for young people who buy health care individually and double digits, and the promise was that our health care premiums would decrease by $2500. we have large employers like universal studios who are actually getting rid of their part-time coverage for their employees altogether, because as you noted, it's now too expensive because of the mandates given by washington. and the one that's recently come out is employers are no longer going to cover spouses because of the mandate to cover kids up to the age of 26, so, now, your child, who
3:21 am
is 26, can be covered, but your wife probably won't be by your employer. this is all thanks to the president's affordable health care law which seems not to be affordable in the least. >> one. reasons i'm grateful that you're keeping track of this, is that so few other people do. the promises go out into the atmosphere and float away and no one remembers them. am i imagining this or didn't the president also promise that obamacare would other the overall cost the health care for the country? >> and it's escalated dramatically and the exhaust is, well, it hasn't grown by the margin it has in the past and again, that wasn't the promise. we need to have more people, as we know in the media, who are really just asking these basic questions, are you concerned that all of these promises have failed to materialize, instead the media is more interested in whether or not they can get a, you know, a photograph of obama playing golf with tiger woods, but thankfully, we have people at least asking the questions
3:22 am
and i know your site, the daler caller does it all the time and it's unfortunate because americans are going to get shell shocked by the price of obamacare and they already are. once it's fully implemented it's scary that it hasn't been fully implemented and prices are through the roof and these promises have fallen flat. >> tucker: jason mattera from washington, i appreciate it. >> thanks, tucker. >> tucker: and from china hacking their way into corporate america, how can you protect yourself from cyber attack if conditions can't. steps forgo up. and if you're opening up the bottles of water, they may have gasoline. ♪ better watch yourself baby, watch yourself ♪ .

3:27 am
and a cyber security analyst cbo connected to the case, he joins us now, hi, morgan. >> hi, alisyn. >> alisyn: that's a great question. obviously, the chinese are using, i assume, some sort of sophisticated technology to hack into the department of defense or to try to. and various corporations, computer systems, but can we assume that lower level criminals are taking a page from them? >> well, actually, alisyn, let's back up. they're actually not using sophisticated systems, what they're using curiosity, social engineering. the big s method of intrusion and the way that they're compromising system is getting you to click on an attachment on an e-mail you think you have a personal interest in. that's where the foot hold starts because the code to infect your computer comes out of that pdf or that document file or attachment. >> alisyn: good to know. talk about we, even us who are not technically sophisticated the at all can protect

sunday morning is fox and friends. >> alisyn: i like it, but too long to type in, but we're lazy, don't you just want to do the 12345. >> yeah, alisyn, five seconds of typing in a longer password, 50 hours of identity theft and dealing with having your life turned upside down because somebody stole your credit card, social security, bank account information, and it takes longer, take five seconds to protect yourself against a wide range of threats. >> one that annoys me, pop-up, the anti-virus programs, update now, update now, and do that right away. >> alisyn, there is an easier way, many of these will do it in the background and download behind the scenes and set it up for automatically downloading all the time. if you wait two to three weeks, that's the new virus or exploit that allows somebody to get into the system. find the setting, let it
3:30 am
update in the background and most the time you'll be protected against 95 to 98% of all the threats out there. >> that's good it to know and turn on personal firewall. how do i do that? >> hey, you know, you've got clayton morris sitting there, your chief geek and there is he' a lot of settings there, simply go into the help file and say personal firewall, a lot of it is the operating system and software. that's good when you're travelling or going down to the local coffee house or a place that has free wi-fi and turn on that personal firewall, an extra layer of defense between you and somebody who is looking to access your information. >> last, you say use identity protection program. what does that mean? >> you know, i have to tell you, as many steps as i take to protect myself my credit card a while back somebody over the last six months physically duplicated the card and used it down in miami while is were in north carolina. you've got to maintain and have the alerts, many programs out there that let you know when somebody's opening up an

daytona with a guest on the aftermath of that and how we can look forward to today's race, hey, rick. >> rick: hey, guys, yeah, today is the big day, the 500. and you're a sports analyst for nascar and a former crew chief and now a thing or two literally about the race here. and seeing that crash yesterday has got to have some impact on today. and tell me when you see that, what's going through the driver's minds today as they're getting ready for this. does that haunts them or scares them? >> i don't know if it haunts them or scares them, the fans injured will be on the driver's minds and everyone's minds. these drivers they have a strange dna. when they buckle in the race cars and crank the engines to start this 500, it's pretty much the task at hand they've got for the 500 mile race and trying to get here to victory lane. of course, all day long and even beyond, those fans and their families will be on our prayers and on our minds. >> rick: it seems like we're getting used to the end ever big races especially here at
3:37 am
daytona speedway there ends up being a crash. an aggressive sport and something at the end. do you think we could see something like that today. >> the numbers say we'll see a late race caution. i think eight out of the last nine daytona 500's a caution in the last ten laps and at that point, everybody says, af he got another shot at winning this daytona 500 and at that point, it's not about a good points day, it's about trying to win the biggest race of the year and make it here to victory lane. >> prior to the crash yesterday, the big story here was danica patrick riding the pole position. talk a little about her chance and what it does for the sport? >> well, it's huge. not only the national attention, but the worldwide attention that's been brought to our sport since she sat on the pole a week ago, and you know, it would be big if she sat on the pole for any of our races, but to do it the biggest race of the year, daytona 500, she's got a fast car and i think her agenda today different from the qualifying race on thursday,
3:38 am
thursday was protecting that race car and still being able to use it in the daytona 500. i think the agenda will change and here to competitive and she truly wants be the first free mail to lead a lap of the daytona 500, which could be possible lap number one. >> she led a few laps yesterday and the engine blew. did it hurt her she didn't have more time in the race yesterday? >> no, i think we underestimate her experience here. and today the 9th start in the different series in the daytona 500. and when she ran right at the front and in the big pack and wrecked by the teammate, but i think she has plenty of experience and the bottom line is she has a fast race car, which is a big key to winning here and performing well. >> and a great team. thank you for joining us this morning and obviously, everybody's hearts are with all of the fans there, but you'll be on the race today on nascar and fox, thanks for getting up early for us, not easy to do. we'll send it back to you in new york.

health. this is a class-based attack on the small, simple pleasures are working people. smoking, trans fats. sodas. michael bloomberg, one of the richest people in the world can't relate to these things and he wants prevention from doing it. >> li see it once again the law of unintended consequences and speaking of recycling. here is what's going to happen. because you can no longer get the two liter bottle of soda you used to order in from dominos or whatever pizza place for your group that was having pizza at your home. now, you each have to order an individual one. and each in its own plastic bottle or comes in its own plastic cup, a straw and plastic cup, so it's more expensive for you, and it's also worse for the earth to recycle, eight plastic bottles than one plastic bottle. >> you're both from new york and live here, why do new yorkers put up with this kind of stuff? you can't smoke a cigarette outside, can't have trans fats, you have to have
3:44 am

was, you know, struggling during finals week, saw a lot of my friends struggling and i saw my parents dealing with being stressed and i just thought there had to be a better way and i initially came up with the sliding time frame concept one of the tent poles of the app. and set the idea out to michael to think about and we went from there and started development. >> clayton: crazy, i think, michael, when i was 15 and 16 years old. i think probably was concerned about girls, i don't think that's gone away. right, you know, reading comic books, playing my guitar, but you're coding and you built this app that gets featured by apple. how did you build this thing? >> yeah, it was definitely an intimidating task when ryan told me about it the first time, but i had a little bit of knowledge about like the whole programming basics, but it took us a long time to get it down and it just was a lot of experimenting and trying things and stuff didn't always work out most of the time, but after a while we started to learn the skill set and we were able to get the good

4:04 am
about. daytona 500 is known as the super bowl of nascar and people are ready for this race and nascar officials feel they're ready for the race and look out exactly where the crash happened. and we'll show you exactly where the french was breached and an engine went through the fence and a wheel flew up into the stands and people 20 rows up were injured from flying debris. and the fence has been completely repaired and in fact, likely a stronger fence because that's where there's a little opening and they have the openings where the fans come out on to the track before and after the race, well, that's where the crash so curd, so it's a bit of a weaker spot in the fence and now that opening has been closed so it's a bit of a stronger enforcement, if you will, than yesterday. so they feel good about that. and no delays for the race and happy there are no fatalities, obviously, but 33 injuries from the accident and a couple of those were serious, including one to a minor and everybody is now in stable condition and nobody has any
4:05 am
life threatening injuries at this point. miraculously, no injuries or significant injuries from the driver, and kyle larson who's car that flew up into the fence, it was his rookie year and first running year in daytona having that kind of thing happening. everybody obviously concerned for the fans and listen to what one of the fans experienced as his brother was injured by the debris. >> i looked down and seen over and his blood wag coming-- his leg was bleeding. and i grabbed my belt and wrapped it around the tourniquet and cut from his, from about right here, all the way down to his knee, almost. >> and i can tell you this crash happened about a hundred, even less than a hundred yards from the finish line and a lot of the cars in the debris flew over the finish line and the winner ended up being tony stewart who narrowly escaped all of the wreckage. normally they come into victory lane and ecstatic by
4:06 am
the win. this had a little bit more of a somber occasion and take a listen how he reacted after the winning the race. >> as much as it's gratifying to win this when you have something like that happens you don't think about winning, you think about what's going on up there and i'll feel better about it when i know that everybody up there and the drivers are all right. to me, that's first and foremost on our mind. >> and nascar probably more than any other sport is all about the fans and every driver yesterday, every one of the comments that they had, they're just worried about the fans and want to make sure that they're okay and at this point, certainly happy to see that at least there are no life threatening injuries from the accident. guys. >> wow, so scary, rick. thank you for explaining that to us, and be careful. >> and be there for today's race so please be careful. >> meanwhile, a look at the headlines and tell you what else is happening. just as oscar pistorius is dealing with murder charges and we're learning his brother

week, to republicans. but so far, it looks like this is going full steam ahead and senator lindsey graham said some interesting things yesterday. he says, look, republicans need to come forward with their own plan to give cuts and stop this whole train. listen. >> this idea that republicans have a let it go into effect and watch the president fix it is not leadership. don't you think that's what's wrong with washington. i thought we were the party of responsibility. our democratic friends are going to raise taxes which is a bad idea. and i think that republican senators should put a plan on the table, rather than turning the government over to barack obama to find the cuts and just watch him do whatever he'd like, i don't like that proposal at all. >> kind of what rush limbaugh talked about this week, just being dispointed in general about his party, about the country and this entire process and sitting back and watching this unfold. >> he's making a pretty specific point, which is you

real cia agent. >> hopefully having cars come down the runway, you know, i felt like kind of externallized the stress that people were under, but didn't change any of the underlying facts. they used their covers, they got past the guards and got on the plane and-- >> just because when i looked out the window the last time of the airport, i didn't see the cars pull out into the -- into view, and i had that feeling. >> he felt the cars were there. which i think is interesting, so affleck gives that intensity, but the cars were never there. and i think that works. >> alisyn: i do, too. >> and how much money is at stake, if argo wins best picture that makes what kind of difference? >> the dvd, i went to best buy everywhere, sold out. the nomination alone helps out, but after you win, of course shall everyone's going to buy the film and argo isn't the highest grossing film of 2012.
4:31 am
that was avengers, i would like to see that or skyfall. the sales will definitely rise up. out of the ten nominees, and "les mis" had more than argo. kevin's going to join us later in the show and do us an oscar quiz, so stick around for that. >> i'm excited about it. >> flip the tables here, ask you guys a question. i'm going home victorious. >> a question, geeking out. >> i'm geeking out and we'll wait a couple of segments to have you explain. >> up next, debris sent flying into the the stands after a massive pileup on the track. how does a crash like this affect the drivers as they get ready for today's daytona 500. and standing by live with one of them. >> plus, it's that time of year again. it's fear week. >> of course you've been counting the weeks. >> we're celebrating the stories behind them. >> i'm hopping excited. >> oh, stop it! >> no, you stop it.

5:09 am
people favor the idea of deficit reduction being a mix of spending cuts, but also tax hikes, on the other hand, if you're a republican congressman who was elected to hold the line on spending and not to raise taxes, it seems an advantage particularly after the fiscal cliff where you had to agree to increased tax rates and some people making more than 400,000, and this is your one opportunity to basically say, no, we're going to make this all spending cuts. even though everybody agrees that the way this happens, where there are no priorities set, just a percentage across the board in every program, it's a pretty dumb way to do it. >> you know d.c. so well, chris and we've had these conversations, as you mentioned, the fiscal cliff and debt ceiling debate and last minute flurry of activity and senators making triumphant returns for the holidays to be there in washington to get it done. do you see a difference this time there in d.c.? >> yeah, i think there's quite a sizable difference and that's because of the fact that with the debt ceiling, if
5:10 am
you reach that point, we would have gone into either a technical or a practical default, jeopardizing the faith and credit of the american financial system. with a fiscal cliff, everybody's taxes would have gone up. the dramatic thing about the sequester is how undramatic it is. on march 2nd, nobody's going to notice a difference. the government doesn't shut down, none of the cuts are going into effect and it's really less a cliff and more a kind of a gentle slope because of the fact it takes a while for the cuts to kick in. in fact, the furloughs and layoffs that people are talking about, they have to give 60 days notice and that won't happen until the end of april, again, all the more reason why this is going to kick in and go on for a few weeks and only when people begin to feel the effects that you may begin to see some political backlash. >> like a sloping cow pasture. >> thank you for that beautiful image. the kind of thing that you would drive a combine on. >> alisyn: and there it is, bam! but, chris, everybody
5:11 am
likes this idea, i guess, in theory. they obviously, government spending has gotten out of control and we need to tighten our belt and cut places, but when it does kick in in that sloping sort of fashion and there are perhaps, delays at the airport because we don't have air traffic contollers or there is no child care as the president warned because some head start programs, et cetera, are closing. then can they undo it? >> oh, yeah, they can undo it at any point. they can sit there and say we're not going to do those cuts, we're going to do other cuts and make the deal the president wants, which is that there's a mix of spending cuts and tax hikes. you know, it's an interesting thing here. both sides have some political risk. the white house thinks at that when people see the real world effects of this, wait for an hour and a half to get through security and flights are canceled. that there's going to be a backlash against republicans, and the republicans think it's going to turn out the doom and gloom from the sequester cut
5:12 am
is not going to be that bad and when this happens, the people are going to say, now what? we're able to cut 85 billion dollars and may have have an increased appetite for cuts. and there's a down side risk on both sides of this. >> tucker: who is on the show today, chris. >> we're going to talk about the sequester with two key senators, and leading the fight for the democrats, and clare mccaskill and how to affect their states, scott walker of wisconsin and head of the national governor's association, jack markel, and our power player of the week, i'm sure a lot of people are interested in, dr. ben carson, world famous brain surgeon who has now touched a political nerve with his comments at the national prayer breakfast a couple of weeks ago. >> fascinating show. that's fox news sunday, check your local listings to see chris and catch it here later on the fox news channel, if you miss it on your local broadcast network, great to see you this morning. >> bye, guys.

fined. joining me now is a small business owner and david mccarthy owns a bakery. thank you for joining us. >> good to be here. >> and the burdens that have been imposed on you as a small business owner? >> what it does, it takes away your total ability to look forward to what you can do in the future, as far as growth is concerned. and you know, for us personally, we're underneath that number, but we offer right at that 50 employee number, full-time employ he enumber. so, if we plan on opening a new location, would you do it? no way. you can't afford it because it's going to drive us into a higher cost percentage and we're lucky, we're able to afford-- we supply health care for our current employees now, but it's a policy that we can afford to buy. if we go above that 50 number now we're into the policy that the government tells us that we have to supply. and that's a whole different league. >> let's take a look at numbers and exactly what this would mean for companies, if they go over that cap and
5:18 am
don't provide the insurance. if you add a 50th employee, 52 dollars more per hour and $12 more for the salary and $12 for the obamacare tax. if they work 33 hours instead of 29 pay approximately more $10 per hour and safe to say and i can hear this in so many words and perhaps, i don't want to put words in your mouth. do you feel that these plans, obamacare specifically, limit growth in this country and holding back the economy because the small business owners like yourself are afraid to hire and afraid to grow? >> well, certainly, it does. and not only that, it holds back the ability, see a small business, what most people think. they look at the camera and see the small business owner and that's who they think they see, the small business, he no, our small businesses made up of who our employees are. it's a small business is a family. it's not the owner, it's the family, it's the employee and what this does, is this this takes me from being able to take, who came in as a good
5:19 am
part-time working at a wage and take them to a full-time level at a higher wage and you know, so it's a double hit. it holds back the ability for that person that came back to work after maybe she was off and had a family and only wants to, you know, work 40 hours a week, instead of now working this, the 29 hours a week, because somebody started school. you can't promote her now. because now you're going to take and have to supply the health care, automatically fathered into this stuff and it's a nightmare. now, it's what happens when you vote for a law and then after we vote for it let's see what's in it? well, folks, it's going to have major consequences on the work force and the two major people it hits is women and the lower educated employees out there today in the work force, those are the ones hit the worse. >> tucker: it's always going to hit people in the the margins first. do your employees understand this and explain it to them? >> my employees know it well. even with the health care policy that we provide if we
5:20 am
would have tried to supply the same policies, the renewal is right now, our family plan went up $90 a month and people come screaming, that's a thousand bucks a year out of their paycheck, what's going on. this health care-- even it's affected people that supply their own personal policies to employees, it's had a major impact on them not even taking into effect if you abide by the mandates that are in there that just drive these premiums over the roof. i mean, they're unaffordable and that's the government's plan, it's unaffordable and everybody has to drop out and go into the state system which is going to be the federal system, unbelievable. >> clayton: david, small business owner struggling with this in missouri. thank you for your thoughts. >> thank you. >> tucker: and stunning news in the oscar pistorius case, we know that he's being charged with murder and the lead detective has been removed because he's being charged, too, and pistorius'

fructose corn syrup and sugar, read the work on this, yes, it's bad for you. what bothers me the hypocrisy the randomness, you're going to ban a large sodas and allow smaller sodas, and the massive frappaccinos in a starbucks and more sugar than a soda. >> alisyn: it's not the first time mayor bloomberg cracks down he says for health reasons. in new york, it's stringent in terms of the smoking rules, the mayor started with that, where you can and can't smoke and basically can't smoke anywhere, trans fats he's cut down on and wants calorie counts on everything, and lots of calorie counts in chain restaurants and this one, many felt crossed the line baby formula. baby formula in new york hospitals kept under lock and key and request it specifically and jump through hoops because he wanted to encourage mothers to

breast-feed, but the idea that you as a mother couldn't make that own choice yourself. there are all sorts of reasons that mothers resort to formula not because they want their children to have a life of obesity, but that's-- >> it's unbelievable that totally out of touch napoleon figure could take control of america's biggest city and start bossing the population around according to his whim and face no opposition. why aren't there demonstrations in the street and chugging big gulps, why aren't they doing that. >> clayton: you talk about the scientists, the arbitrary nature even on the calorie count issue, yes, it's great to go to starbucks and go there over the years and you ike to see that number so it sort of dissuades you-- >> now that i know how much is in-- i don't order. calorie counts doesn't matter. arbitrary calorie counts doesn't matter. >> tucker: it's not science-based. >> clayton: that's my point. >> tucker: we're the party of science, where is the science?

"fox & friends" hour 4 starts right now.
6:03 am
a devastating crash at the daytona speedway leaving a fiery trail and dozens of fans hurt. >> tony stewart is going to win this race. a terrible crash coming to the finish. >> an unbelievable scene at the end of the nationwide series race. the multicar wreck sent the front half of a car through the fence. >> rick reichmuth was a few hundred feet away from the crash and joins us live from daytona, florida. >> a scary scene. this is the biggest event in the nascar world, it's the super bowl for them, the start of the season. people come out so excited for a big race. they don't expect to see something like this. impacting the spectators like this is very different. the safety for spectators is
6:04 am
huge for nascar and obviously this is a big concern. listen to what one of the fans had to say about his reaction to the accident. >> we always felt safe there. so i hope it doesn't mess up nascar or daytona because this really -- that's a unique, unbelievable, freak accident and we feel bad for the fans that got hurt. >> yeah, that's -- you know, i think a lot of people understand it's a freak accident, something they never thought could happen. nascar and the teams will go in and see what happened with the car. kyle larsen's car was ripped to shreds and the engine ended up in the stands. the entire with wheel, brakes and everything, hurdled through the air. i tweeted a picture of the
6:05 am
fence. it's in perfect condition. they feel confident it's ready for the race today. the nationwide series race had a winner, however tony stewart not able to celebrate in the typical way. listen to what he had to say. >> we've always known since racing started, this was a dangerous sport. we assume that risk and it's hard when the fans get caught up in it. i'm more widower about -- worried about the drivers and fans. i could see it in the mirror and it didn't look good. >> we talked with michael waltrip and he said the year they changed when everybody put in safer cars was in 2001. four drivers died that year. there were no fatalities since then. for all the drivers to walk away without serious injuries, certainly remarkable.
6:06 am
at this point, 33 people yesterday injured from this and there were a couple in critical condition, but according to the medical areas, none of the injured have life-threatening injuries. there's another news conference at 9:30 from nascar. we'll have information from that as well. >> thank you for the update from there. just as oscar pistorius is dealing with murder charges, his brother is in the same situation. overnight details emerge that carl pistorius is facing homicide charges. he allegedly hit and killed a female cyclist. but pistorius says the woman drove in carl's car. a manhunt is underway for 26-year-old ammar harris, who police identified as the suspect in the deadly shooting on the
6:07 am
las vegas strip. on thursday, that suv drove up to a maserati, firing shots into the car and speeding off. the maserati crashed into a taxi and exploded, killing three people. rapper mc hammer singing a different tune after getting arrested last week. >> ♪ can't touch this ♪ ♪ can't touch this. >> the rapper arrested for obstructing an officer and resisting arrest. police say they approached him in a mall parking lot about expired registration and he became argumentative. on twitter he said the cop asked him if he was on parole or probation and pulled him out of the car. he was wearing jeanie pants. just kidding. >> still no deal on the looming sequester. some of our nation's governors
6:08 am
are going to washington, joining warning calls of what the cuts could do to the economy. they want their federal dollars. peter doocy is live from washington with the details. >> what we saw yesterday was a bunch of democratic governors and republican governors come to washington, d.c. to rip on lawmakers who live and work here in washington full time. there was a lot of blame being placed on congress and the white house for the agreement they made to make sequestration the law of the land. here's how the democratic governor of vermont, petershamland, said the automatic cuts would set the state's economy way back. >> how can you possibly be looking to self impose this crisis. it means for our constituents job loss and going back into a negative economy out of the longest recession in american history. it's very painful. >> the sequestration includes
6:09 am
defense cuts as well. hawaii's democratic governor, neil abercrombie, reminded us yesterday pearl harbor symbolizes what happens when you're not prepared. he said the sequester would undermined the capacity for readiness at pearl harbor. republicans are sounding similar alarms with alabama's governor saying he wishes the sequester's cuts weren't to blind and across the board. >> i want a reasoned approach to this, and i know that we need to cut. there's no doubt we all have to cut. we have to balance our budget. we understand that. but we want a more surgical approach to this rather than it being a draconian cut like they're talking about at the present time. >> one very candid from iowa governor who said his feeling is that he can't help what's going on here in washington. back to you in new york.
6:10 am
let's talk about what's going on in michigan. they are facing a bit of a bottle crisis. a scam that people are pulling off, perp perpetrating on the people of michigan as they go across state lines with gallons of recyclable bottles. out-of-staters coming in to get the 10 cents. in michigan they pay more. it reminds us of seinfeld where newman and kramer tried to pull off the same scam. >> in michigan. >> michigan, you get 10 cents. >> 10 cents? >> yeah. >> wait a minute, 5 cents here and 10 cents there? you could round up bottles here and run them to michigan. >> that doesn't work. >> what do you mean? >> you overload your inventory and blow your margin. >> you're not talking about the michigan scam. >> oh, yeah. >> you tried it? >> every which way. i couldn't crunch the numbers. >> art is imitating life
6:11 am
imitating art. in michigan they have this problem as clinton said where they have lost $13 million as a result of people coming from ohio, wisconsin, bringing in truckloads of bottles because they want the 10 cents back. >> we got a lot of michigan folks saying the problem is not the program, it's that we get 10 -- we get a 10% deposit. when you buy a glass bottle, you make a 10 cent deposit. people out of state haven't made the deposit. >> look, i sympathize with michigan. i married a girl from michigan. but michigan people, it's time to admit this is a silly law. your state has attached a price to bottles and cans that isn't real. the government can't create prices. they're not worth 10 cents. that's why you're getting taken advantage of. it's time to repeal the law.
6:12 am
>> so you don't prove of people going to jail for this? >> they passed a dumb law. i don't think they passed it for malicious reasons. it's silly and they should just repeal it. >> 93 days in jail. that's the sentence. >> has your wife ever tried to pull off the deal? >> we do it every summer. we fly to detroit with crushed mountain dew cans. just kidding. >> where he want to hear from more michigan viewers. next on the show, this ... >> look, denying media bias has to be like denying science. you're worse than a flat earther, you're a no earther. >> who has greg gutfeld so relied up? >> what is he doing up so early? >> his show ended at 4:00 a.m. is your home a mess?
6:13 am
we're clearing the clutter. professional organizer merle star is cleaning up homes, claiming it makes a better marriage. sometimes what we suffer from
6:14 am
is bigger than we think ... like the flu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. the flu comes on fast,
6:15 am
so ask your doctor about tamiflu. prescription for flu.
6:16 am
is mainstream media bias a mitt? that's the line from nbc news. the answer, is resounding yes. it's the reason republican staffers won't allow boss to say interview liberals on liberal networks. >> i think the mythology of the nonconservative media has gotten into some offices so there's is this fear of -- it's a -- i feel like it's a mythology that
6:17 am
younger staffers believe. they actually believe the spin that's out there. my god, that's what the mainstream media does, anything to disrupt the conservative agenda. the mythology is believed among more staffers. >> the next guest says that's insane, like denying science. greg gutfeld is cohost of the five, author of the joy of hate. really, one of the great books of the year. >> probable the greatest ever. >> probablier ever. with the bible and oliver twist. you're saying media bias is real? >> hard to believe. i think what happened with chuck todd, and this happens a lot. you have a word a day calendar and the word was mythology. he said that three times. it's like when president obama says balanced approach over and
6:18 am
over. you can't get it out of your head. the only time you should talk about mythology is if you're trying to find a public bathroom that's clean or a decent maroon 5 song. they don't exist. but to deny -- when they talk about climate change deniers, they call them flat earthers. these are flat liners because they're brain dead. the amount of evidence is astounding. the journalist scandal. drones. when president bush was using drones, that was evil. when president obama uses them, drones are suddenly like beautiful butterflies with digestive problems. it's suddenly okay. look at the way occupy wall street was portrayed versus the tea party. the tea party was racist and evil. occupy wall street, furry animals this needed a hug. >> when you talk to someone that works at the one of the
6:19 am
broadcast networks that says it's not real, do you think it's a talking point or do you think they believe it? >> i don't know. it could be a dilution or a medical disorder. i'm not a medical expert, though i've told people that i am. you know what it is? people surround themself with people they have things in common with. there's a lot of people in the media that don't know conservatives and they come from the campus, the academia, which is like the mcdonald's the media bias but over 4 million corrupted. it's a -- they don't know any conservatives. so it's like when you actually question them on a -- anything. any specific issues, or bring up the tea party, not really bad people, they look at you with a jon stewart approach of you can't be serious. come on, you're not that dumb to believe that stuff. that's the response to every time you question them about media bias. it's like, oh please.
6:20 am
>> that's just -- >> right. but how does this happen? i mean i've noticed this. i agree with you and everything you said is true but why are the press so liberal? >> i will go back to the it's -- they're created by machine. the machine is the college campus. that's where they come from. it's no different except professorrers are replaced with tv producers. nobody has challenged them and they think -- like when they run into somebody who questions it, it just like -- come on, that doesn't. >> what would you do about it? >> you do what you're doing now. point it out, but with good humor. it becomes tiresome if you lose it as a default position. you sound old and tired but it's real. >> totally real. >> we have the evidence. when you look at voting practices and political
6:21 am
contributions, the evidence is there. >> greg gutfeld. >> not bad for early in the morning. >> i'm very impressed. that was lucid and true. >> i'm heavily medicated. >> this bartender fired for calling the cops and telling them the customer was too drunk to drive. the employer said it was bad for business. can clutter break up a happy relationship? is a clean house a content house? these couples cleaned their gutters, their clutter, got organized. learn tips from them straight ahead. the machine showed me a map of my feet, and it gave me my custom number.

6:37 am
thunderstorm. does that doing in to your preparation? >> not really. it gives nascar the chance to try out the track drying system. it dries the track really fast. i'm sure they'll test that at some point today but i think we're clear. everybody says we'll get the race in today. >> perfect. thank you very much. stay safe. thank you. overnight, pope benedict has given his final sunday blessing at the vatican, speaking from his apartment window he told thousands in st. peter's square he'll continue to serve in a different way. this was his second to last public appearance at pope. the final appearance will be wednesday and he steps down on thursday. the first pope to resign in 600 years. >> a 21-year-old texas man shoots and kills an intruder. he answered the door of his home thinking the intruders were his

6:40 am
to give weight to someone who hadn't been convicted of a felony over one who had. all the time, the energy, legal threats, might be better used to convince people not to commit crimes. i'm struck by community leaders never turning to say to people don't commit violent crimes. >> prevention. crime, education, healthcare, we treat the symptoms afford aftereffects before we treat the -- >> the other thing about the mandate, or suggestion, a strong suggestion for the employment commission, is that they're saying don't do -- they're telling employers don't do such thorough back ground checks. they don't want you to because it would reveal the criminal had a criminal -- i should say ex felon had a criminal background
6:41 am
where as there's a huge push for more background checks for people who with an to own guns. i believe the two will work at cross purposes. >> it's a threat. it's absolutely a threat. when the federal government issues a guideline like this, they're saying you want to stay out of court? you don't want us to crush you or the civil rights decision staking out your business? follow our commands. employers do. >> and businesses say this is confusing. we don't understand the new standards because our saying one thing and then on the other hand you're saying another. let us know what you're thinking about this. find us on twitter. remember the bell, california mayor fired for paying himself six figures when the town was broke? he says it's not his fault, he's illiterate. plus, what one famous director has never won an oscar

6:47 am
was in the contract. is that accurate?f course not. i sat in on city council meetings where he was reading. so it's like wait a minute, you're saying when we saw you reading and writing, you're claiming you're illiterate. what statements are you sending to us? >> his attorney says this, defending his client, he says many prominent lawyers and accountants are paid to review the laws and salaries of bell and never say the laws or salaries were illegal. if the experts didn't know, how could mr. hernandez know about it. what do you say to that? >> first and foremost, oscar hernandez was elected into the council to represent the community, to fight for us for better jobs, for businesses, and to really look for the best for -- for our best interests. for them to say, well, this
6:48 am
person didn't know, it's your responsibility as a mayor to ensure that you find out. you need to find out what is and isn't appropriate. and if it doesn't seem right, maybe you need to get new people in. that's your job. that's your job, to find out -- to look for appropriate attorneys, to look for a city manager that's going to work for the community and is not going to inflate their own salaries. 780 -- over $780,000 for a city attorney should tell you, wait a minute, no other places are earning this much, not even new york or los angeles. this is wrong. >> his attorney went on to defend him in other ways. the lawyer basically is defending him saying this is a great success story. he was an agriculture ral worker. he can't read, he's not meant to
6:49 am
be scholarly. this is a great story. >> as a resident of belle, as someone who sat in on city council meetings. they also said he supposedly would listen to the people and he had listening ear. well, i'm here to tell you that that's all false. i don't know about all false but it was false when i went to council meetings and spoke to the mayor and requested for certain things. it went in -- you could see it went in one ear and out the other. he schooled us on why the decisions he was making were appropriate and why we were wrong. so for them to say he listened and he was such a great man, it's like i think -- i can't -- he probably started out that way. i'm not saying he's an evil person. but at the same time, he -- it turned into something big, into a monster. it was a monster that --
6:50 am
>> got away from him. >> absolutely. >> dale walker, great reporting. keep up the work you're doing to stop the abuse. we appreciate you joining us and keeping us up to sedate. >> date. >> the oscars just a few hours away now. so just how much do we know about hollywood's biggest night? kevin mccarthy is giving us the oscar quiz. you better not be getting the questions ahead of time. >> nope. >> grab your paper and pencils and play along.
